A hybrid operating room with a ceiling mounted angiography system requires about 85 m². What makes the hybrid operating room special is that at least 10 m² is reserved for an adjacent technical and control room. To protect against x-ray radiation, all room-bordering components must be furnished with 1.5 – 2.0 mm of lead. Because of the high requirement for extremely bacteria-free and low turbulence air in the operating area, the operating room must be equipped with an LAF outlet. It should be designed in such a way that the completely dressed operation team plus all instrument tables fit within the protective area of the LAF outlet. In this example, the standard size, 3,200 mm x 3,200 mm, does not cover the required field so that the size of the LAF ceiling panel should be 3,500 mm x 3,200 mm.
The operating table should be located in the center of the room, and configured with a table top made from carbon composite to accommodate all imaging methods; surgical lights are positioned above.
A duo ceiling anchor with an anesthetic connectivity arm and an x-ray protection screen is installed at the patient’s right side / head end. The foot end of the operating room is equipped with a surgical equipment pendant and a supply arm for anesthesia or perfusionist procedures. In the middle of the room, there are duo ceiling mounts positioned on the right and left hand side of the operating table top; the mounts bear the monitor arms for imaging / endoscopy procedures, x-ray screen as well as for the operation lights with special length of suspensions for Hybrid procedures. These kind of special length offers a light patch overall the table length for complex and flexible procedures.
